I actually don't mind the decoder anymore. The code looks simple and neat,
and it would be nice to be able to view the few random psd files I have and
which the decoder can open. No full decoding support is planned, which
would require inhuman effort to complete even like 20% of anyway, so I
doubt the decoder will grow into a huge mess. I mean viewing psd files is a
big pain anyway, so eh, if the decoder can open a few of them and save
people the effort of having gimp (which also doesn't support some psd
features) without being a security disaster it's okay. When you think about
it png is also a mess, its been extended to hell with nonstandard chunks,
but we even have pretty good encoding support for the base of it. Not sure
what the fuss is here, because there's no public standard?
